Screen Printing on Zinc

 Zinc is an element that is essential for life.  Plant life as well as animal life.  It is necessary for cellular and enzyme functions.  I chose a number of plant cell formations for the Thermofax screen prints, as seen here.  Because the zinc makes the fabric sort of irregular as a printing surface - I found the sponge brush was the best choice for the application of the acrylic paint.  I used regular acrylic paint because I wanted it to be stiff....
